For Africa to grow and prosper, we need early childhood development, schools, colleges, universities and research organisations to overcome the major challenges and disruptions the continent faces. As leading engineering and infrastructure advisors, we understand clients’ needs to cut operating costs, stay ahead of technology, and meet the demands of stakeholders.
Zutari has been working with tertiary institutions, school developers and National Departments of Health on a variety of large-scale, country-wide projects. For over 15 years, we have worked closely with the South African National Department of Education, with our involvement being at almost every level of the improvement and management of educational facilities.
A variety of learning institutions across Africa
Zutari maintains strong relationships with all the universities in South Africa and has been a part of numerous types of projects such as Technical and Vocational Education and Training Centre projects, and schools for disabled learners. From World Bank funded programmes to improve the management and delivery of higher education in Kenya, Ethiopia and Tanzania, to developing a data management system that includes site layout plans, standardized photos, contact details and the condition of thousands of schools in South Africa, Zutari has become a trusted advisor and implementer of many large-scale public and private projects.
A major constraint for underprivileged students is finding the money to pay for student lodging and transport from where they lodge. From unlocking opportunities to make more affordable accommodation available to students to acting as the Programme Manager for the Accelerated School Infrastructure Delivery Initiative, which aims to address the infrastructure backlog on schools that do not meet the basic safety norms and standards, Zutari is working with visionary clients who want better education for Africans.
Embracing digital disruptions
When you partner with Zutari, you will be working with a team of technical experts that has a deep local knowledge and a vision to create human-centric solutions that will help Africa prosper. We provide all engineering and infrastructure advisory services, from master planning, infrastructure portfolio planning and condition assessments to digital modelling, programme management and the full gamut of built environment services, including world-class green building design and ESD services.
Zutari also offers a one-stop business advisory solution for public and private education departments who value engineered solutions. The business advisory services we offer include organisational and operational support, financial assistance, process redesign, integration and management of systems and data platforms, as well as the development of Integrated SHEAQ (Safety, Health, Environmental, Asset and Quality) Management Systems.
For educational institutions to survive and thrive, we need to start thinking differently – more creatively – about how society continues to learn, develop and become educated. Zutari’s eyes are on the societal, environmental and technological challenges that await us over the next few decades. By partnering with us, our clients create educational institutions that not only embrace the changes but also exploit the opportunities that lay ahead.
Beyond traditional engineers, we act as trusted advisors to play a bigger role in helping businesses redesign their educational solutions to reduce costs, optimise sustainable energy, improve assets, and embrace digital disruption.
